Did you just go to synthetic? And now it is ticking or did you go to synthetic beacause of the ticking?

No, its a rebuild bought at OReillys. Started with conventional , then went to synthetic on first oil change. Shortly after that is when the ticking started.

I would go back to convential oil and see if the tick goes away, you have only ran this in it once so there should be a problem going back, if the tick doesn't go away with convential oil then either the lifters weren't setup properly from the rebuilder or you have some lifters that are bleeding down too much overnight. I don't care what people say, some engines just don't like synthetic oils, I have a Jeep that is one of them, I tried synetithic in it and the oil consumption went from a quart in 3000 to 2 quarts in 3000, went back to conventional and the oil consumption went back to normal quart in 3000.

It's also supposed to run 5w-30

OK so even if I go back to conventional its no problem .
